Work Hard, Play Hard but Remember Your Value

Snapshot_002

There’s lots of good stuff happening right now in both of my lives. We’re fast approaching the MadPea Celebrity Auction at !Exodus! which brings both of my SL working lives together for a great cause.  A week later we will be launching The Peatonville Asylum adventure game that we have been working on non-stop for over 2 months.

Yesterday I wrote the blog post on the MadPea blog where I announced the hud packages for the game and while the vast majority of feedback there were of course the dissenters who complained about having to pay to play.  The minimum cost to play is L$100. What you get for that L$100 is hours of gameplay, a rich layered storyline, a fun group of people and community to join and play alongside and a goodie bag. The silver and Gold hud packages are loaded with extras and rewards.

What has it cost to develop the game…well I don’t track the exact costs, or know what my colleagues are paid but a team of 15 people working flat out for 2 months, building, scripting, designing, blogging, marketing, graphic designing, texturing, writing, animating, making poses, liaising and organising collaborators. 2 sims, built and decorated as well as the associated costs of those sims. Plus freelancers to fill skill gaps such as making clothing items for the Gold Hud Costumes.  I think most rational people are reading this and thinking “Wow! People really complain about spending 100L$ after all that work” Yes, they do and it’s heartbreaking because no matter how much positive feedback you get the fact that someone can sit in your group and accuse you of being greedy is hurtful. The irony is that if they really stopped to think about it, it’s them that are greedy expecting everything for free.

I believe that are two main reasons for this expectation and I spoke about one of them when I, along with Kiana Writer, was interviewed by Saffia Widdershins at SL12B earlier this year. People are not used to being asked to pay for experiences in SL and therefore they often don’t place a value on them. They go to clubs and don’t expect to tip the venue and sometimes don’t tip the staff because it’s someone else’s responsibility to pay for their entertainment. If everyone thought like that there would be a lot less clubs and venues in SL that’s for sure. But as long as someone else is subsidising their time why should they be bothered. They would however be the first to kick-off if they turned up at their favourite venue and found it ‘pay for entry’ or group only with a group charge. There are free games on the grid…go play one and then try a MadPea game and tell me you don’t notice a difference in quality level.

The second reason I believe is the misbelief that MadPea Games are hunts (in the traditional sense of a hunt). Yes there is a hunting element – you have to find items to complete your passage through the gameplay but you are not hunting prizes. Most standard hunts in SL don’t have full sims themed to the storyline, mini adventures, a storyline, themed outfits to wear to immerse yourself. We make interactive grid-wide adventure games not hunts and our rewards for completing the game are far superior to any ‘hunt’ I’ve ever done in SL. When you play Peatonville at the Gold Level you will get 50 Rewards – 2 from each of the collaborating creators who include Zerkalo, AF, Serenity Style, Botanical, Exile Hair, Noodles, Reckless Tattoos and Junk to name just the first few that came to my mind.

I buy my homes, my clothes, my mesh bodies, heads, hands and feet, my decor, my hair, my accessories… I work hard, all the team do, most of us alongside real life jobs because we love what we do but yes, we value our time and our work and that means it has a price tag. It’s about time other game and experience creators put value on their work and charged accordingly and more than about time that all SL residents understood that you get what you pay for.

I’m not just Special, I’m a Limited Edition…

Snapshot_005

I played with that quote a bit because the original is ‘I’m not special, I’m a Limited Edition’ and when it comes to this elegant Asian loft skybox from DaD Designs it is most definitely special too! The 100% original mesh loft comes with two options, one with a privacy cube, with a footprint of 28 x 28 and 30 x 30 respectively and is perfect for a home or store or that separate lil getaway place in the sky.  Crazy to think that’s it’s only 31Li!!!

Snapshot_004

The best thing about this tranquil, peaceful place to call home is that it’s a Limited Edition at the 24 Designer 2015 which runs from the 11th to the 19th and only 150 of these will be sold which means that you won’t find them all over the grid in everybody else’s parcels and will be far more exclusive to you to show off to your friends. But you have to be quick as the event only runs for a week and these will sell super fast at only L$390.

Everything, except the space, is small…the price, the Li, the number available so grab one while you can because everyone needs a place to call nirvana.

Those Who Don’t Believe in Magic Will Never Find it

coven_001

All Hallows Eve is just a few weeks away and the stores and events are filling with more and more great decor items that fit the theme.

Being a Brit I was intrigued by the way Halloween is celebrated in other countries and certainly the popularity of it in Second Life, where it has got to be the second biggest celebration after Christmas holidays, is a reflection of the fact that the largest population represented in SL are Americans where Halloween is a widely celebrated holiday.

coven_003

My parents were aghast when I asked once as a child if I could go ‘Trick or Treating’ as some of my other friends were going. “NO you can’t go house to house begging! Whatever next!” was my mother’s horrified response. It’s funny that you quite often find yourself saying the same things to your kids that were said to you when you have your own children. Except in this case. When my children were old enough to want to go Trick or Treating I enjoyed dressing them up and taking them out. We didn’t go to houses where we weren’t expected. There were several children of around the same age in the small area where we lived and the parents had all agreed to visit each other for the kids to experience the fun.

coven_002

Both the current round of the Arcade and Collabor88 have great items for decorating your home, store, club or special halloween areas this year. I adore the set pictured above from unKindness. The Charmed Parlor set comprises of Thrones, Fireplace and mirrors that all come with 6 colour change options. The throne comes with over 20 unisex sit animations and then the decor items can be added in around you with the Rug, Table and a selection of candles in complimentary colours. The set is a great focal point to build your perfect witches parlor around.

The Show Must Go On

Life's a Circus

Ah, this is the life. I’m writing this with a very nice glass of chilled French wine in one hand while listening to the sultry sound of the super talented Saintess Larnia at The Sable Club in Second Life.  I enjoy live music in both lives and believe it’s one of the best things about SL that we can teleport from one amazing vocalist to the next in a matter of seconds.  Of course, the big advantage and difference in SL than in real life is that there is usually absolutely no cost to us as the end user. But someone is paying…SL Artists rarely play for free or tips only…well the extremely good ones don’t, nor should they. Usually it’s the club owner that is heavily subsidising our hour of entertainment and their motives for doing so can be varied.  I always try to remember to tip the venue alongside the singer and host or hosts. Trust me, the management will appreciate it no matter how big or small the donation.

So much good stuff to be sharing with you of late. My look of the day is brought to you by fri.day, AlterEgo and a new-to-me store, Chocolate Atelier.  I found the latter while checking out stores that had applied to take part in the next MadPea adventure which starts on 1st October…Peatonville Asylum. Whenever I find a store of this level of quality that I haven’t been to before I’m always at shocked at first…I mean…I shop a lot! How did this store escape me? My shock usually turns very quickly to happiness at having found the store and optimism that there are still new stores with great quality items that I have yet to find and I always look forward to discovering these little gems.

Life's a Circus

I’m wearing a bodysuit from Chocolate Atelier which comes in a range of colours and with appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Wowmeh, SLink, Lola’s and Cute/Phat Azz as well as tattoo and system layers. The bodysuit gave me a great excuse to try out the brand new AlterEgo Leg Fade appliers which also come in a huge range of colour options, regular tattoo layers or TMP, SLink and Omega appliers. All this set off perfectly, in my humble fashion opinion by the fri.day Aisling wraps which you can still pick up, if you’re quick, from C88 for the next couple of days.

Life is a circus at the moment but it’s a good circus with lots of fun and laughter. I hope you’re own circus is making you smile as much as mine is.

The Music of Cursed Love

cursed blog_001

Loving deeply is a blessing and a curse. The elation and joy of feeling a person in every pore of your skin and every fibre of your being can so quickly become despondency and pain of unrequited love. During our lifetime we usually experience more than one of both ends of the spectrum…if we’re lucky. That sounds a little crazy but I believe that you can never fully appreciate the amazing highs of being in love unless you have experienced the depths of the lows.

The Cursed Collection from MadPea at this round of The Arcade is an example of love and evil meeting in a whirlwind. I won’t give away too much of the back story because I don’t want to spoil the mystery and surprise. The Cursed Collection comprises of 13 animated, wearable instruments. The instruments first featured in the MadPea adventure The Collection (which continues until the end of September). The RARE is the conductor’s baton and stage and when you rez your instruments on the stage…magic happens…but is it good magic or evil magic?

cursed blog_002

MadPea has added a little extra spice to the gacha set too! Inside each package is a piece of a letter. Collect all the pieces and see where the mystery takes you….it will be worth your while I assure you. The Arcade opens on 1st September and the MadPea Gacha is  only 50L$ per play. Most importantly this is your ONLY chance to get these instruments as the set will be retired when The Arcade closes at the end of September. 

It’s difficult to show in static pictures the beauty of the full orchestra in action so hopefully this animated gif will give more detail.
